A reception will be held for the reopening of D&E's Paull Gallery Friday, April 6 from 4-6 p.m. in Myles Center for the Arts. The event will feature the artwork of Susan S. Johnston. A former resident of Elkins, Susan S. Johnston created this collection of paintings, “A Forest Festival,” in honor of Elkins, Davis & Elkins College and the beautiful mountains and forests of West Virginia. Some of the paintings in this exhibit are part of Johnston’s “Arbor” series that create interconnecting tree limbs in visual rhythms and patterns. These paintings are about our connection to the environment and reverence to our forest home. Johnston has also included paintings that celebrate the humble beauty of the forest floor.
Please note, the Gallery is located on the second floor and there is no handicap access.
